Description

The Mathapalooza Room at Rockhurst was founded by Dr. Mairead Greene and Dr. Zdenka Guadarrama. It is the perfect place for all ages to come and investigate mathematics concepts that are not usually part of a K-12 curriculum. Students of all ages engage in hands on activities to explore, discover and develop their own understanding in a college environment. Experiencing mathematics as an interactive and fun subject can help students see mathematics as an exciting option for further study, and visualize themselves as future professionals in math related careers.
The Mathapalooza Room is sponsored by Rockhurst University, Cerner, Harley Davidson, JE Dunn, PrepKC and AT&T.
